The reason for the visit...Purple Martin. I think I'll need a flash next time. It might help to go when the sun isn't as bright...look at that fringing...even at F8.

House Sparrow moving in upstairs...

I need a longer lens...

Nest building time.

Tree Swallow

Barn Swallows

First glimpse of a Heron this year...

Those swallows in flight are tough to capture. Well done.

You have a good variety of species there. As Susan mentions those little guys move a mile a minute - well done.

The Osprey and Swallow shots are cropped down to 3MP. 300mm really isn't long enough for birding of this sort but I can't afford anything longer right now. It was just right for the Swans though. They have conveniently made their nest right next to the DEC parking area.

You could lose most of that if not all in PP, give at go.

Interesting images, looks like you had a good day, with a wide range of subjects just flying in for you.
